P3DV5.2 Simdirector Catalog not loading addon scenery objects

Post by bcars »

Starting with the latest P3DV5.2 ( June 2021) simdirector loads extremely fast, however the only items in the catalog are the default p3dv5 scenery objects. None of the addon scenery items are available.

This occurs not only at the default airport, but when changing the Location to another airport. All the objects (bgl files) and placement for the given airport are rendered, so it IS reading the addon airport scenery, however non of the local bgls show up in the catalog.

This worked fine in P3DV5.1 h2

Hello,

We added a new setting that filters these objects out by default. If you uncheck the "Ignore Unnamed Catalog Object Models" setting in the SimDirector File menu these will load.

Rob:
Thanks for the quick reply. I saw that option but thought "Unnamed" was referring to objects / models not named (guid only) not 'other bgls', so somewhat ambiguous. Could have been a little more intuitive. Works as implemented :-)

Still much faster loading since it appears now to only pick up bgl's in the active sceneries unlike 4.5 where it found any bgl anywhere.


Thanks
